When out on the trail, the equipment you have along is all you have to rely on until you get back to the comfort and safety of your home. It is up to you to determine the essential equipment you bring along to make your hike comfortable and safe. Failing to bring along the right gear may mean a miserable experience or worse.
As a field-tester, the reviews I have provided are based on my own experiences and represent an unbiased account of the gear I use and trust.
